Ogilvie Fleet’s Irish expansion

Ogilvie Fleet has acquired the corporate division of Northern Ireland-based Contraflex Contract Hire and Leasing for a six figure sum.

The firm, which is based in Scotland and has offices in Sheffield, says the decision of a number of the major funders to pull out of the contract hire and leasing market in Northern Ireland, in the wake of the 2008 banking crisis, was the catalyst for its decision.
